Update My Voter Registration Information

As a Florida voter, it is your responsibility to keep your voter registration record current and up-to-date with your county supervisor of elections office. Voters are encouraged to update their voter registration prior to Election Day to avoid completing paperwork and ensure a smooth voting experience. Use our online Voter Registration Status Tool to look-up your voter registration. Record changes/updates can be made by completing and submitting a Florida Voter Registration Application online, in person, or by mail.

When Can I Update my Voter Registration

 

All registered voters in the state of Florida can update their voter registration record at any time, with the exception of a political party change for a primary election. All party changes for a primary election must be made by the registration deadline (bookclosing) which is 29 days before the election. If the request is made after the deadline, the change will not take effect until after the election.

Signature Change

 

Over time our signatures begin to change and those with physical disabilities or affected by a disease may have difficulty maintaining a consistent signature. Signatures are compared against the voter’s record to verify and count petitions, vote-by-mail ballots, and provisional ballots. If the signature provided does not match, the ballot or petition may not count.

To update your signature or identifying mark, you must submit a Florida Voter Registration Application.

Signature updates can be made at any time but must be received no later than the start of the canvassing of vote-by-mail ballots in order to be accepted for an election. (F.S. 98.077)

Party Affiliation Change

 

All party changes for a primary election must be made by the registration deadline which is 29 days before the primary election. For a general election, a party change can be made at any time. A voter can declare or change his or her party affiliation submitting a Florida Voter Registration Application or a signed, written notice that includes the voter's date of birth or Florida voter registration number.

Information on Florida's major and minor political parties can be found on the Florida Division of Election's website

Florida is a Closed Primary state. In partisan office contests in a primary election, a voter may only vote for the candidates of the party in which he or she is registered. Voters registered with no party affiliation (NPA) are not eligible to vote for partisan candidates in a primary election unless a Universal Primary Contest (UPC) occurs.

All registered voters regardless of party affiliation are entitled to vote on non-partisan candidates and issues. 

In a General Election, all registered voters receive the same ballot regardless of their party affiliation and are eligible to vote for any candidate.
